View Full Version : [ubuntu] complete noob question; Sharp mx 4501n

August 20th, 2008, 05:33 PM
We have a Sharp MX 4501n at work and that I am unable to print to (I am the only Ubuntu user in office). I downloaded the linux drivers from sharp and unzipped them. The package has an installer however, it says I must be logged in as root in order to install.

Is there an easy work around that would get me printing on this printer?

run it from terminal as root. what type of file is the installation? if its a .sh file type in terminal: sudo /location-of-file/./filename.sh .
